An Introduction to Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a study of “reflexes” located throughout the body.  Many points are located in the feet, face, ears and hands.  As the ancient Chinese documented in the book, “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine”, the reflex zones map out the entire body system and one’s essence energy connected through the Meridian System (also called Chi or Qi).  When these reflexes zones are stimulated through gentle but firm pressure, it increases blood and lymph circulation, clears out blockages in the energy channels and eliminates toxins.


How does Reflexology work?

Reflexology treats the body as a whole and looks for blocks – areas that are suppressing energy flow.  Much like a traffic jam can debilitate a city, a blockage can cause pain throughout the body.  Reflexology traces the root cause of this blockage and treats the body system from multi-dimensional angles, optimizing the energy pathways.

Reflexology works with the central nervous system, the immune system and the lymphatic system.  First we identify the blocked areas and then through massaging the face, feet and hands we work to permanently restore the energy.  It’s a non-invasive and deeply profound treatment that allows the body to regenerate itself.

While the greatest benefits of Reflexology are attained over the course of several treatments, many of my clients feel a change almost right away!  Taking this quiet time to care for your body, naturally improves one’s outlook and sets a course for positive thinking.

“In countries all over the world, Reflexology is quickly being embraced for its provision of enhanced health, profound relaxation and pleasure, coupled with its inherent simplicity and harmless nature.” – Dr. Martine Faure-Alderson, TOTAL Reflexology.
